Encircling the Seamless: India, Climate Change, and the Global Commons

The volume discusses global commons against the complex global political relations. It explores the nature of the global economic crisis, the search for finding a solution to the climate change problem, and efforts to conserve biodiversity in their centres of origin. The narratives from within India-the desert terrains of Rajasthan, the hills of Darjeeling, and the Western Ghats-reach across the borders to the world of industrial complexes in the North that produce and spew chemicals for disposal and re-use in the South , the soft belly of the globe.
